Back to Basics

Rebecca Dale PhotographyWhen I don’t know what to wear I reach for comfortable basics like a sweater dress, bright scarf, neutral heel and leather jacket.  This leather jacket was one of the best purchases I’ve ever made.  It’s soft and lightweight, but still keeps me incredibly warm.  It’s the ideal layering piece and can be worn underneath a trench coat or fur vest.  There are so many gorgeous leather jackets online right now – below are a few of my favorites.  I’m headed back to my hometown Scottsdale, AZ tomorrow so be sure to keep up with my trip on Instagram!

    I love those outfits that you can just throw on when you don't know what to wear. I've been obsessing over leather jackets lately. They can just change an outfit instantly.

    Kat !!! You always post the most amazing outfit pics !!! It's impossible not to comment! I love the scarf & of course the amazing jewelry stacking ! May I ask how tall you are ?! I am on a desperate search for a leather jacket (& side note a denim jacket). I am 5"9 & everything ends up looking too boxy & short !

    Have fun in AZ & good luck with your travels.

      Andrea you are too kind – thanks for always commenting! I'm almost 5'7" :) These drapey leather jackets are longer in the front so they're ideal for someone who is tall! Hope you find one that works!!!

      xoxo
